How do you get your nanomanufacturing info.? The National Nanomanufacturing Network wants to know

According to the April 2, 2012 news item on Nanowerk, the National Nanomanufacturing Network has announced an online survey. From the news item,

The National Nanomanufacturing Network is conducting a survey of nanomanufacturing community members to better understand the avenues that people use to stay informed about advances in nanomanufacturing.

As for who the National Nanomanufacturing Network (NNN) is (from the NNN About page),

The National Nanomanufacturing Network (NNN) is an alliance of academic, government and industry partners that cooperate to advance nanomanufacturing strength in the U.S.


The mission of the NNN is to serve as a catalyst for progress in nanomanufacturing in the U.S., through the facilitation and promotion of nanomanufacturing workshops, roadmapping, inter-institutional collaborations, technology transition, test beds, and information exchange services. The NNN operates as an open-access network of centers, leaders, experts, and stakeholders from the nanomanufacturing research, development, and education community. It is a partnership between academia, industry and government that is built to foster and serve nanomanufacturing communities of practice.

Network Partners

The core foundation of the NNN consists of the four NSF nanomanufacturing NSECs—the Center for Hierarchical Manufacturing (CHM), the Center for High-Rate Nanomanufacturing (CHN), the Center for Scalable and Integrated NanoManufacturing (SINAM), and the Center for Nanoscale Chemical-Electrical-Mechanical Manufacturing Systems (Nano-CEMMS)—as well as the DOE Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT) at Sandia National Laboratories and the NIST Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology (CNST) and other affiliations. InterNano is the information arm of the NNN—a digital library resource of timely information on nanomanufacturing and a platform for collaboration.
